Clinical and radiographic results with the Trilock femoral component--a wedge-fit porous ingrowth stem design.

PMID:  10149559     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Eighty-one cementless Trilock (Depuy, Warsaw, IN) femoral components were observed for 2 to 6 years. The following end points were examined: revision (none), pain score less than 5 (six patients), and radiographic settling greater than 5 mm (three patients). Four patients (5%) had thigh pain at follow-up. No complete radiopaque lines could be identified around the porous surface of the femoral components. By any standard, the wedge-fit tapered cementless femoral design is successful. As the follow-up period lengthens, a survivorship analysis can be done to assess the long-term potential of the Trilock design.
